NIS America Bringing Reynatis West

NIS America announced it is partnering with FuRyu to release the recently-announced action RPG Reynatis internationally. The game — which will release on consoles in Japan this July — will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe, as well as for PC via Steam worldwide, in fall 2024.

Reynatis is developed by FuRyu and Natsume-Atari, featuring a scenario written by Kazushige Nojima (Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X, and more) with music composed by Yoko Shimomura (Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy XV, and more). The game is set in a version of modern Shibuya that blends fantasy and reality. Magic is feared by the citizens of this Shibuya, meaning wizards are forced to conceal their identities and powers, with an organisation called the MEA dedicated to keeping wizards under control. It has six playable characters with two competing main protagonists on the sides of freedom and order. Marin Kirizumi is a magician who has obtained unconstrained power and yearns for freedom, while Sari Nishijima is an officer of the MEA who desires order.

Reynatis features a realistic recreation of modern Shibuya, featuring numerous landmarks, shops, streets, and more. The game also features an alternate world known as Another, a fantasy realm containing monsters and various secrets. Players can accept various quests from the citizens of Shibuya, switching between Suppressed mode, which hides the character’s identity and powers and allows them to talk to civilians to find clues for new quests, and Liberated mode, which grants access to powers but will cause MEO officers to be sent to intercept them. In combat, Suppressed mode allows players to easily evade attacks at the cost of not being able to attack, while Liberated mode grants full offensive powers but leaves them vulnerable to attack.
